UMoncton board of governors votes against changing university name

News

The Universit√© de Moncton’s Board of Governors recently voted against changing the university’s name. This decision follows the release of a UMoncton-commissioned report that outlined the various motivations, costs, and impacts of a potential name change. Board president Denis Mallet told CBC that the board decided that the name change was not currently a priority for the university and felt that no new information had been presented by those requesting the name change. Instead, the board will focus on contextualizing the origin of the university’s name and plans to update its place-naming policy.
